Last Updated: 7-2013


This paper contains the most important findings of researching the preferences of dwelling buyers regarding dwellings on which the former owner installed a photovoltaic system(PV system). These preferences are determined using a discrete choice model on stated preference data of dwelling buyers in the Eindhoven region. The most important conclusions are that a PV system is on average highly appreciated by dwelling buyers and that this appreciation is relatively larger by dwelling buyers that live in more urban/central neighborhoods.
